Yesterday, my sister and I were able to spend the entire day together canning applesauce and apple pie filling. It was a successful day and I wound up with 14 quarts of applesauce and 5 quarts of yummy apple pie filling.
It was my first time canning and it wound up being just so much fun :)
We had three bushels of apples.
We started off by cutting them into fourths and taking off the stems. We then put them into boiling water to soften them.
Aaand, I had a picture of the applesauce, I just forgot to upload it. But we had a ton :)
Stephanie was very talented...pouring the syrup WITH a baby in the other arm.
